On this International Women's Day and following the noteworthy appearance by 10 Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary on the program "En direct de l’univers" with Julie Snyder, some students witnessed to their great appreciation for the contribution by the Sisters.
And so it was that Jacinthe Laporte posted on her Facebook Page “...they are among the great builders of Quebec, with their educative mission and the thousands of young girls (including myself) that they have taught and inspired since 1843. Thanks to all of you...You have loved us and propelled us forward in a magnificent way.”
These former students responded by mentioning “How could we not forget Sister Gisèle and “Sister Jacqueline Longtin(who hired me at l’Externat Mont-Jésus-Marie)"?
A “Thank you!” message was posted, in French, on the SNJM Quebec Facebook page in response to the comments posted on Jacinthe Laporte’s Facebook page.
